This video explains how to print a test page for your printer.

A test page provides useful information about your printer.

In addition, printing a test page from the control panel

of the printer is often a helpful step in troubleshooting

because it bypasses problems caused

by software, computers, or connections.

First, open the paper output tray

and raise the paper input tray.

Then, load paper into the input tray until it stops.

Slide the paper width guide inward

until it stops at the edge of the paper.

Do not push the guide in so tightly

that it starts to bend the paper.

On the control panel,

press and hold the black and color copy buttons.

Release both buttons at the same time.

The test page prints.

Now, let's talk about what the test page can tell us

about your printer.

The most obvious point is if the test page prints out,

you know the printer itself is working correctly.
